Forum: GratefulDead Subject: For Tom Waits fans

Sent today> WAITS/CORBIJN ‘77-‘11, a collector’s edition linen slipcase book limited to 6,600 copies, is scheduled for a May 8th release in US and Europe by renowned German publisher Schirmer-Mosel. The coffee table art book not only features over 200 pages of Waits’ portraits taken by Corbijn over four decades, but also includes over 50 pages of the first published collection of musings and photographs taken by Waits himself. The linen bound book has introductions written by film director Jim Jarmusch, and the longtime music critic Robert Christgau.

Photographs of Tom Waits by Anton Corbijn, photographs by Tom Waits of the vivid quotidian, stretching down through the years and presented for the first time in a beautiful clothbound book; side by side, these 226 images record one of the longest and most fruitful collaborations in the careers of both artists. “It’s rare, Corbijn says, “to take photographs of someone over a 30+ year period. Our work together developed totally organically and that’s a beauty in itself. We are very serious about our work but when it comes to working together, we’re like children resisting maturity. It’s liberating and a much needed legal drug.”

The book can pre-ordered for $199.99.

Of course, drugs are always expensive.

Weirdly, somehow I can't reply to micah's post, just to this one - has something changed? (It keeps asking me to log in).

Anyway what I wanted to ask is: is there a book of Tom Waits' collected lyrics available anywhere?

ps Sad to report that my mum died in November - I remember some forumites' kind remarks when I mentioned her great age (she was nearly 92). Sorting out her things has been keeping me busy, but it's nice to be back in the swim.

Always thought the Dead would have done a nice version of "Gun Street Girl", especially w.Jerry on vocals.
